League: Collegiate Baseball

History: The Brooklyn College Kingsmen (today they are the "Bulldogs") were members of the Metropolitan Collegiate Baseball Conference and played the majority of their games at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, NY.

Rivals in the conference included Manhattan College, CCNY, NYU, Hofstra and St. John's. Famous alumni who went on to play Major League baseball include New York Yankees All-Star pitcher Marius Russo and fellow hurler "Subway Sam" Nahem, who played for the Brooklyn Dodgers directly after graduation.

Measuring Guide

We offer three kinds of ballcap visors:

Pre-1940 ballcaps were made with soft visors so players could fold them up and put them in their back pockets. Later visors were done in standard (stiff visor) or short (also a soft visor). Check the product details to see which type of visor each cap has.
